Fun day on the water!

We enjoyed our time in the water. We have been kayaking before however there were people who had not been before when they separated the people into groups and some people couldn’t swim. They wasted some of our time for our trip. Our guide was amazing and handled everything beautifully. Raol was a fantastic guide and we enjoyed his adventurous spirit. For people who will be doing this trip I suggest wearing your bathing suit on the bus and bringing your change of clothes for after the water. There were only 6 bathroom stalls to change and the “locker room” has no privacy.

Good but challenging
Siobhan_B

The trip was good, however very difficult to get in and out of the kayak. They were all tied together and we were told to jump off the edge, however the waves were pushing the kayaks together so it was a bit scary jumping in and worrying out being crushed between the kayaks.

The Costa Brava is such a beautiful part of Spain, we were thrilled to be able to see it. This tour was extremely well organized from start to finish. We had 40 to 50 people on a comfortable, air conditioned tour bus. Our guide gave us very clear directions each step of the way. Once we arrived at the kayaking location, we were broken down into smaller groups and given a guide to stay with us. It is definitely more difficult kayaking in the open ocean than on a river or lake, but no one capsized going over the waves. Paddling out was difficult because we were going against the current and into the waves, but coming back was easier. The snorkeling was refreshing but we didn't see a lot of fish. We are in our 60's and did just fine, although I would say most people on the trip were younger than us. The scenery was the highlight of the trip. It was nice getting out of Barcelona and seeing more of Spain on this very well organized trip. Lunch and water were included. Bring your sunscreen!

Deceived

Site advertised kayaking in caves. This was the main reason we reserved this trip. We kayaked around rocks and snorkeled in barren waters. NO CAVES! The guides were very nice but that was really the only good part of the trip. Also promised a drink at the end of the trip- that never happened either. Most of our time was spent traveling from Barcelona and then sitting on the side of the road waiting for the bus! I would not waste a whole day again.

Fantastic, but burnt my feet!!

An amazing experience, and one of the best things my partner and I have ever done. Would definitely recommend! However, there are a few things I think should be mentioned!!! Bring water shoes, as the sand was unbearably hot to walk on and they don't provide lockers- it's just a room which can be locked. Perhaps wet bags should be provided? But the guides are lovely, and we had a great evening! Definitely worth the money

Kayaking?

The kayaking was a joke. Way too many people who had no idea what they were doing trying to paddle around rocks. The tour should have probably been canceled as well, it was thundering the whole time, the waves were huge and with the wind I understand why inexperienced people were having trouble. This is the first time I have ever written a poor review about a tour but I wish I'd known more.

Great day horrible lunch
Jennifer_B

While the trip itself was a lot of fun and Owen Is a very good guide. It was a nice place to visit and the right amount of time. The downside to the day was lunch. A ham baguette that has been exportó the heat since 9.30 was inedible. I was not going to risk listeria poisoning during a summer vacation. A bottle of water also warm was totally unappealing. I think food purchased locally would be fresher as everyone was very hungry by 2.30.

This kayaking trip was the highlight of our trip to Barcelona! Everything ran smoothly! We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming in a cave, and jumping off rocks! Our guide, Raul, was amazing and was so helpful but also very relaxed! We would definitely do this again!!

I bought this as a present for my best friends 30th birthday. We both had an amazing time. Our instructor Owain explained everything thoroughly and was very friendly. This was our first time and we would definitely do it again.

L-O-N-G busride. Short beach-time.
Lyle_S
, Jul 2022
Maybe we didn’t do enough research and understanding ahead of time, but we’re all feeling like the long bus ride, and then spending time handing out lunches (which could’ve been done on the bus), and long explanations (which could’ve been done on the bus) weren’t a good use of our time. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful when out in the water. The beach itself and the kayaking were really nice, just not enough of that.
